We were looking for a more authentic and quiet experience in the countryside. This place fit the bill perfectly! Nestled in a tiny, centuries-old hamlet, the old, renovated farmhouse had all the comforts we needed and the peace and quiet we craved. With our daughter and our niece, we each had our own bedroom, which provided even more relaxation. The small pool was cold which discouraged the others but did not stop me. We went for short walks in the surrounding fields, watching the cows and the sheep. Lovely Mom Cat and her 2 two beautiful kittens (who were always around) had our number in no time and knew where to come for breakfast and dinner. We wanted to pack them in our bags! Our host, Laurent, was charming, easy-going and could not have been more helpful! The area is perfect for day trips to castles, gorgeous villages and charming markets - and then come home to perfect stillness and peace.
PS Don't expect the TV to provide entertainment, and do bring your own board games. But playing jeu de boules and badminton on the lawn was very cool. Btw: no internet (which was good and bad at the same time).
Right from the moment we arrived, we were made to feel so welcome and have been looked after superbly by Andy and Dawn for whom nothing was too much trouble. The gite is wonderfully homely and superbly equipped - together with the patio, garden space and of course the pool. The location - secluded but only minutes from town, with all of its amenities, cafes restaurants and markets - is absolutely ideal. It's been a truly memorable holiday and we’ve recommended the gite to our friends and family since our return. Look forward to returning next year!
